About Diabetes

Diabetes is a chronic condition that affects millions of individuals worldwide. At CTIP, we understand the importance of providing accurate and up-to-date information about diabetes and offering essential support to those affected. Our Urban Healthcare Initiative Program aims to address the growing concerns regarding the prevalence of diabetes in urban communities.

Understanding Diabetes

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder characterized by high blood sugar levels due to either insufficient insulin production or ineffective use of insulin by the body. There are three main types of diabetes: type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes.

Type 1 Diabetes

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease where the immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. This results in the absence of insulin, requiring lifelong insulin therapy and regular blood sugar monitoring.

Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes, often associated with lifestyle factors such as poor diet, sedentary lifestyle, and obesity. In type 2 diabetes, the body becomes resistant to insulin or doesn't produce enough insulin to maintain normal blood sugar levels. It can usually be managed through lifestyle modifications, medication, and regular monitoring.

Gestational Diabetes

Gestational diabetes occurs during pregnancy and usually resolves after delivery. It is essential to manage gestational diabetes to avoid complications for both the mother and the baby. Close monitoring, healthy eating, and regular physical activity are crucial in managing gestational diabetes.

Importance of Diabetes Management

Effectively managing diabetes is crucial for overall well-being and preventing long-term complications. Uncontrolled diabetes can lead to various complications, including cardiovascular disease, kidney damage, nerve damage, and vision problems. With the right knowledge, resources, and support, individuals with diabetes can take control of their health and lead fulfilling lives.
